2018 Coriole "Estate" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

SKU #1488364 93 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark This has an elegant touch rather than the heave-ho of so much in the region. Kudos! Fermented in open-top vessels and hand plunged before transfer to French hogsheads, the result feels more medium of density than full. The aromas more floral and succulent, than jam. Think violet scents and an effortless waft of dark cherry, iodine, anise, olive and assorted spice. A lovely flow to this. Inner quote mark (8/2020)

Outer quote mark Red-berry and some earthy, savory aromas here. The palate has undeniably fleshy, red-plum, licorice and chocolate flavors. Classic regional identity. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (5/2020)

The Coriole “Estate” Shiraz is sourced entirely from estate vineyards planted by the LLoyd family when they acquired the property in 1967. A big step up from the Sparta Shiraz, it has gorgeous aromas of blue fruit, boysenberry, pie crust and vanilla. This puts on a full display of rich, succulent fruit; I can’t think of a better example of McLaren Vale Shiraz. Spice notes come through on the finish. This is dense, rich Shiraz that pushes big fruit, but without going over the edge into the hedonistic. There is just a ghost of tannin that plays out across a powerful, lingering finish. A phenomenal wine.

Shiraz with a lighter touch. This bottle still has the back-end peppercorn and spice you'd expect from the grape and region, but with a softer opening that, against the heady finish, provides an unusual refinement for the price point. Grilled lamb or chicken is always a winner with Aussie Shiraz, but the relative grace in this bottle give it a range that isn't often seen with the varietal, making this an intriguing pairing with veggie dishes or, maybe especially, falafel.

I don't think I need to tell anyone that Shiraz is great. It's what put the continent of Australia on the wine map for most people, and although they grow just about everything, Shiraz is still home base for me. Dark blue fruit open the nose up, surrounded by a bit of pepper, old violet, cedar, and leather. The palate is rich and luscious; again, those blue fruits take the reins, followed by the savory spice, flowers, and oak tannin. This gets back to the reason why we love Shiraz: it's easy to drink, complex, and nowhere near as expensive as its French sibling!
